    Description

    Many biodiversity inventories are conducted in relatively small areas, yet information is needed at the national, regional, and global levels.Most nations have forest inventory plot networks.While forest inventories may not contain the detailed species information that biodiversity inventories do, the forest inventory plot networks do represent large areas.Linkages can be developed among plot networks and extrapolated through remote sensing.A first step is to locate resource inventory and remote sensing information.A second step is to obtain and make use of information.This may require the formation of linkages and partnerships among data sets and data collectors.
